A Toronto obituary for Geraldine refers to Margaret as Mrs. Greenwood. Toronto city directories say that she is the widow of Thomas Greenwood. Thomas C. Greenwood, representative, News, boarded at 185 John Street at the time Geraldine owned the house, according to the 1898 and 1899 Toronto city directories. When, later, Geraldine was at Gloucester Street, certainly in 1920, Margaret is listed as the widow of Thomas Greenwood. A death registration for Thomas has not been found.
